Need for Speed: The Run is a racing video game, the 18th title in the Need for Speed franchise, and developed by EA Black Box and published by Electronic Arts. The 3DS version is being developed by Firebrand Games, the team behind Undercover and Nitro (both DS versions). It was released in North America on November 15, 2011 and will be released on November 18, 2011 in Europe.
The gameplay is fairly similar to Hot Pursuit. Players race down freeways until they meet a police car. The officer will then try to chase them down and wreck their car. They will also encounter other objectives such as a straight-up race. There is another mode where players duel a rival. They can also race to toll booths that double as checkpoints.
The 3DS version will also feature Autolog, which is integrated throughout the career mode and uses 40 in-game challenges scattered throughout the campaign. The game also takes advantage of StreetPass, letting players upload their best Autolog scores to other Nintendo 3DS devices. In multiplayer, the game will feature a straight race mode where eight people compete. There is also a four-on-four Cops vs. Racers mode. The game will support Wi-Fi and local wireless connections.
However, the Wii version lacks online play, yet it has split-screen multiplayer.
